OBS 7.3 vs My 6.0

A friend of a friend got an old 7.3 a while back and I've been hearing that its a pretty quick truck. I don't know what exactly is done to it engine wise but I know its tuned, dual stacks, intake, and it suppositively has a turbo and injectors (don't know what kind). I would like to hear from my 6.0 guys and some 7.3 guys with what they think about this. I'm always down to race anybody but I just like knowing how the outcome should go. I know these trucks are generally pretty slow but I also know that they can be made pretty fast as well.

I am currently trying to get more information on exactly what tuning, turbo, adn ijectors this truck has. I am pretty sure it is a stock trans (I know its an automatic).

Mods on my truck are in my sig...(I also have Atlas 40 on the FICM and I would be running Vivian's Looney Wild Track file and do a boosted 4X4 launch).

Here is a pic of said truck...



What do you all think?

-Mike

Unless he has spent about $3500-$5000 on engine and trans mods he aint going to stand a chance against a tuned 6.0.

HOT OFF THE PRESS!

So I just found out exactly whats done to the truck. I'll post exactly what he said right off Facebook.

What exactly is a 7 Stage chip? How big is a 70mm turbo and what are banks internals?

I don't know if anything is done to the trans.

AND 755HP PLEASE, how big of a lie is that! Does this guy think I'm stupid.

School me on 7.3s please!

What do you have to say about that facebook comment?

I also just found out that the truck bed is held on by 1 bolt, the truck is missing some lug nuts, and it leaks oil out of ever gasket on the truck. lol

oh, and apparently rumor has it that their is a beer can in one of his stacks.

But is it even possible for a 7.3 to make that kind of power with those mods?

I need to hear from some 7.3 guys for this one!

I like both trucks but the 6.0 with just a custom tune is going to be a challenge for a 7.3
IMHO

diesel power mag has some 7.3's way up there in HP with minimal mods
